A bit more about Koh Lanta

Koh Lanta as a district was established in 1901 consisting of four island groups known as Mu Koh Lanta, Mu Ko Klang, Mu Ko Rok and Mu Ko Ngai and is belived by many to be one of the oldest known communities in Thailand.

Even though the origin of the name of the islands are not entirely clear, the name was made official in 1917 derived from the Javanese word “Lantas” which actually means a type of grill for fish.

Mu Ko Lanta National Park was established in the year 1990 and was named the 62nd national park of Thailand, takes up 134 km2 of the district and is definitely worth a visit.

Trains are also available from the Trang Province south of Krabi, from where you may switch trains to take you to Bangkok.

There is a mixture of cultures in the areas in and around Koh Lanta as well as Krabi. A mixture of Buddhists, Muslims, Sea Gypsies and Thai -Chinese creates a variety to enjoy especially since there is no religious tension in the area despite the differences. In fact, since there are so many different cultures, there is almost always something to celebrate which makes it an excellent destination to learn about new cultures.
